NRL 2021: NZ Warriors players Reece Walsh, Adam Pompey facing one-match ban

NZ Warriors could be without teen sensation Reece Walsh for their round 14 clash against the Melbourne Storm after he was cited in their last-minute 29-28 loss to the North Queensland Cowboys.

The Warriors fullback has been caught up in the NRL's crackdown on foul play after he was cited for a grade one striking charge on Cowboys forward Mitchell Dunn, who was also charged.

The 18-year-old retaliated to a forearm from Dunn after the pair became embroiled in an altercation in the 35th-minute - which wasn't picked up on the field - which saw Walsh retaliate.

Walsh will receive a one-match ban with an early guilty plea or risk a two-match ban if he pleads not guilty and loses at the judiciary.

Warriors centre Adam Pompey is also facing the same fate after being charged with a grade one crusher tackle on Cowboys replacement forward Heilum Luki.

Pompey will miss the match against the Storm with an early plea or a two-match ban at the judiciary if he loses. 

Warriors lock Jazz Tevaga has escaped with just a fine after being charged with a grade one dangerous contact charge on Luki, which saw him sent to the sin bin. 

Tevaga will receive a $1350 fine with an early plea or $1800 if found guilty at the judiciary.
